Engadget Review

Apple’s strategy with the entry-level iPad remains “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.” This year’s update contains a few noteworthy updates, particularly the new front-facing camera and double the storage space, but they don’t really change the experience of using an iPad.

That’s OK, though, because the iPad experience is extremely mature at this point. The hardware is powerful, the battery life is outstanding, there are tons of great apps available, and iPadOS 15 is a solid update. The iPad’s form factor is getting very old at this point, but that’s the only problem here.
